US/Cuba Relations By Delvis Fernández Levy, PhD Cuban American Alliance December 19, 2014 “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” George Santayana, Spanish American Philosopher Life of Reason, Reason in Common Sense, 1906 The Cuban Revolution triumphed on the heels of two successful CIA-sponsored ‘regime- changes.’ In 1953 Iran’s Prime Minister Mohammad Mosadegh was overthrown, and later in 1954, a coup was staged against the president of Guatemala Jacobo Arbenz Guzmán, a democratically elected president with 67% of the vote. The social-nationalistic agendas promoted by these leaders and their governments were beyond what the U.S. was willing to tolerate: land reform in Latin America and the nationalization of oil wells under British control in the Middle East. Although viewed as American Foreign Policy successes, these interventions bore cataclysmic long-term consequences for the people of these nations. These regime-changes along with American acquiescence in the co ...

'Having' a Black president means absolutely nothing for the vast majority of People of Color, many of them in the Middle East and from Latin America, who have experienced this sociopath's racism - from bombings to more deportations that the Bush-era. Um. Yeah, Obama has engaged the Feds to do MORE deporting of people of color than Bush, he has assassinated Muslim-Americans without any due process or trial (assassinations of US citizens by the government is something that hasn't happened (openly) since Lincoln)... So yeah, we have a little diversity on the top, but the top is still being the top... sadistically beating us to death, either through the slow, banal tyranny of debt and finance, or directly via the military-police-prison US imperial compex.

The World Bank has published three reports expressing its grave concern about the perils of global warming. The first report was "Turn Down the Heat: Why a 4°C Warmer World Must be Avoided". It summarised the scientific consensus on the likely impacts of a 4 degree world. The second report, "Turn Down the Heat: Climate Extremes, Regional Impacts, and the Case for Resilience" highlighted the likely impacts on Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia (India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, the Maldives) of a 2 degree and 4 degree warming world. The report posted here notes that a warming from the current .8 degrees centigrade to 1.5 degrees is already locked in. We cannot avoid a doubling of the impacts we have already seen (e.g. floods, storms and droughts in NZ). It highlights the likely impacts on water resources, ecosystems and coastal hazards for Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, North Africa and parts of Europe and Central Asia. We already see water scarcity as a point of conflict and competition .. ...

The US Empire is far from democratic. It is authoritarian! It is imperialist! It is unjust! And a revolution is needed. Western imperialism has spent the better part of five hundred years trying to impose Western values on peoples throughout the world. These peoples have never had a meaningful voice in the political, social and economic policies that have been imposed on them. Imperialism, by definition, is undemocratic. While the policies of the US government impact billions of people around the world, only a tiny percentage of the global population have any say in electing that government. And the overwhelming majority of the 121 million Americans who vote give little thought to how their ballot will impact Muslims in the Middle East, indigenous peoples in Latin America, and billions of others throughout Africa and Asia. Their voting decisions are primarily determined by their perceived immediate needs, which provides a veneer of legitimacy not only to US democracy but also to US imperialism. Consequent ...

Sometimes--no, often--we forget just how well off we are in the face of the myriad of problems in the world today. I hope the author won't mind me passing on his comment, I'm not registered with that online publication, or I'd have asked first. I wish I could thank him directly. Sometimes the comments on an article are as good, even better, than the article itself. "* [new] The number of such groups and their hot spots (15+ / 0-) is down remarkably from the last days of the Soviet Union.

Economic growth started to catch on globally, with some hitches.

Why Obama Hates Netanyahu. - Daniel Greenfield, FrontPageMag.com, 30/10/14. Obama’s Foreign Policy was supposed to re-boot America’s relationship with the rest of the world. Old allies would become people we occasionally talked to. Old enemies would become new allies. Goodbye Queen, hello Vladimir. Trade the Anglosphere for Latin America’s Marxist dictatorships. Replace allied governments in the Middle East with Islamists and call it a day for the Caliphate. Very little of that went according to plan. Obama is still stuck with Europe. The Middle East and Latin American leftists still hate America. The Arab Spring imploded. Japan, South Korea and India have conservative governments. And then there’s Israel. The original plan was to sideline Israel by focusing on the Muslim world. Instead of directly hammering Israel, the administration would transform the region around it. The American-Israeli relationship would implode not through conflict, but because the Muslim Brotherhood countries would take i ...
Editor's View Nations far from West Africa are scrambling to train health workers and screen people possibly infected with Ebola. But so far, only a handful of cases have been reported outside of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. Over the weekend, President Obama urged Americans not to give in to hysteria about the disease. While there have been public health missteps in the United States, those are likely to be corrected in the days ahead, given the depth of US resources. The real battle is in West Africa, where more than 4,500 people have died and the health-care infrastructure has been overwhelmed. While the United States, Europe, and private donors have pledged money and sent aid workers to the region, little help has come from the Middle East, Russia, Asia, and Latin America. Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf yesterday read a poignant “dear world” letter on the BBC, pleading for “global citizens” not to leave “West Africans to fend for themselves." To date, however, much of world ha ...
US President Obama thanks the Aga Khan Development Network at the Clinton Global Initiative. I want to thank our partners in this effort, including the government of Sweden and the Aga Khan Development Network. Starting next year, civil society groups will be able to use these centers to network and access knowledge and technology and funding that they need to put their ideas into action. And we’ll start with six centers in Latin America, in Sub-Saharan Africa, in the Middle East and in Asia. Oppressive governments are sharing “worst practices” to weaken civil society. We’re going to help you share the “best practices” to stay strong and vibrant. … No matter how dark the hour, we remember those words of Dr. King: “The time is always ripe to do right.” And Dr. King also said: “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” The reason we support civil society is because we have seen in this country of ours that it does, in fact, bend toward justice. But it does n ...
Mexico Becomes the New Israel in Quest for Hispanic Votes By Margaret Talev Bloomberg Businessweek (September 2, 2014) Shalom, Jerusalem. Hola, Mexico City. The Middle East has long been a required stop for presidential hopefuls wanting to prove their Foreign Policy chops. Now, Latin America is becoming an "it" destination for Republicans with an eye on 2016. In shaping visits and connections with neighboring countries to the south, they're weighing how to build political goodwill with Latinos who -- at 17.1 percent of the U.S. population and growing -- are increasingly key to winning future elections. They need to distinguish themselves from escalating anti-immigration rhetoric by Republicans in Congress while preserving an ability to secure nomination from their activist base. In the latest move, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is traveling to Mexico tomorrow on a state trade mission, avoiding a border stop while focusing on the economy. "A trip to Latin America is becoming just as much of a requirem ...

Ponder this and do something about it! The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few. (Matthew 9:37) Presently, North America has 94% of the world's ministers serving 6% of the population. This means only 6% of the ministers are trying to reach 94% of the population in the remainder of the world. There are approximately three billion people representing over 16,000 culturally distinct people groups yet to be reached with the Gospel. There are over 2,000 languages for which there is no translation of God's Word. For every 10,000 villages in India, 9,950 have no Christian witness. In Japan the total Christian population is estimated at only one percent. In Latin America there are at least five million people in jungle lowlands who have not been reached with the Gospel. There are 750 million Muslims with only approximately 500 Protestant missionaries ministering among them. The need in other nations of Africa, Asia, South America, and the Middle East is similar to these examples. This is what ...

"Terrorist organizations could seek to leverage those same smuggling routes to move operatives with intent to cause grave harm to our citizens or even quite easily bring weapons of mass destruction into the United States.” SOUTHCOM’s intelligence assets reveal the possibility is far more than just crying wolf. “Supporters and sympathizers of Lebanese Hezbollah are involved in both licit and illicit activities in the region,” Kelly told Congress. “Members, supporters, and adherents of Islamic extremist groups are present in Latin America. Islamic extremists visit the region to proselytize, recruit, establish business venues to generate funds, and expand their radical networks. Some Muslim communities in the Caribbean and South America are exhibiting increasingly extremist ideology and activities, mostly as a result from ideologues’ activities and external influence from the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia. Mr. Chairman, we take all these activities seriously.”"

Role of SindhWorkis (Sindhi Traders in foreign countries) in Gadar Revolt & INA under Subhash Chandra Bose Submitted by: Dial V. Gidwani- Sindhu American , American Institute of Sindhulogy Sindhulogy The Sindhi Hindu community uprooted as the result of India’s Partition, now girdles the globe. But then for Sindhi traders, globalization was never a new concept. For decades, well before Partition, Sindhi traders (commonly known as SindhWorkis) had established themselves practically in every city of the world, with larger concentration in Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Malaysia; through the Middle East to Africa and Gibraltar, and across Britain and Europe to the U.S. and Latin America. So much was the presence of these Sindhi traders in practically every world city that a dear old lady, whom I had the pleasure of knowing, commented after Neil Armstrong’s dramatic landing on the Moon, “Amazing, he found no one there, not even a Sindhi trader!” This joke was extended by a well known Sin .. ...
Caucasians have waged more wars and engendered more destruction of civilisations than any other race in human history.

USA & The Middle East: The U.S. and the Middle East Since 1945 A Guide to Mideast Policy from Harry Truman to George W. Bush The first time a Western power got soaked in the politics of oil in the Middle East was toward the end of 1914, when British soldiers landed at Basra, in southern Iraq, to protect oil supplies from neighboring Persia. At the time the United States had little interest in Middle East oil or in imperial designs on the region. Its overseas ambitions were focused south toward Latin America and the Caribbean (remember the Maine?), and west toward East Asia and the Pacific. When Britain offered to share the spoils of the defunct Ottoman Empire after World War I in the Middle East, President Woodrow Wilson declined. It was only a temporary reprieve from creeping involvement that began during the Truman Administration. It’s not been a happy history. But it’s necessary to understand that past, even if only in its general outlines, to better make sense of the present -- especially regardin ...
The Fateful Geological Prize Called Haiti By F. William Engdahl Global Research, January 30, 2010 30 January 2010 Region: Latin America & Caribbean Theme: Oil and Energy In-depth Report: HAITI The Fateful Geological Prize Called Haiti President becomes UN Special Envoy to earthquake-stricken Haiti. A born-again neo-conservative US business wheeler-dealer preacher claims Haitians are condemned for making a literal ‘pact with the Devil.’ Venezuelan, Nicaraguan, Bolivian, French and Swiss rescue organizations accuse the US military of refusing landing rights to planes bearing necessary medicines and urgently needed potable water to the millions of Haitians stricken, injured and homeless. Behind the smoke, rubble and unending drama of human tragedy in the hapless Caribbean country, a drama is in full play for control of what geophysicists believe may be one of the world’s richest zones for hydrocarbons-oil and gas outside the Middle East, possibly orders of magnitude greater than that of nearby Venezuel ...
Happy Birthday Sir Duke! We love you madly! Duke Ellington influenced millions of people both around the world and at home. He gave American music its own sound for the first time. In his fifty year career, he played over 20,000 performances in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East as well as Asia. Simply put, Ellington transcends boundaries and fills the world with a treasure trove of music that renews itself through every generation of fans and music-lovers. His legacy continues to live on and will endure for generations to come. Wynton Marsalis said it best when he said "His music sounds like America." Because of the unmatched artistic heights to which he soared, no one deserved the phrase “beyond category” more than Ellington, for it aptly describes his life as well. He was most certainly one of a kind that maintained a lifestyle with universal appeal which transcended countless boundaries.

No, not the humble banana ... it's the only fruit I eat. - World banana supply at risk as disease spreads A disease damaging banana crops in Southeast Asia has spread to the Middle East and Africa, posing risks to world supply and trade totalling $8.9 billion, according to the United Nations' Food & Agriculture Organisation. The TR4 strain of Panama disease, a soil-born fungus that attacks plant roots, is deadly for the Cavendish banana that makes up about 95 per cent of supplies to importers, including North America and Europe, Fazil Dusunceli, an agriculture officer at the FAO, said by phone this week from Rome. While the disease hasn't reached top Latin America exporters such as Ecuador, Costa Rica or Colombia, TR4 was discovered in Jordan and Mozambique, indicating it moved beyond Asia, he said.
NPR's Lourdes Garcia-Navarro recently compared sexism in the Middle East and Latin America. It generated a massive response from readers, and she addresses some of those comments in this followup.
Anywhere that there is crises and people are being killed, you must see the imprints of the United States of America. Whether in the Middle East, Near East, the Korean peninsular, Eastern Europe, Latin America etc. In all these places and more the filthy hands of this arrogant imperialist power is evident. When the terrorist regime of 'Israel' assasinated the celebrated Hezbullah commander, Hajj Ridwan, in a cowardly attack the then US President Bush quickly said:"The world will be a better place without Mugniyeh." Ayatullah Sayyed Fadlallah(r) of blessed memory answered that shameless war criminal:"The world would definately be a better place without the White House." Imam Khomeini(r) summarised it all: "USA = Great Satan"

Peru is reaching out to Middle East investors as the country gears up for some $15 billion in infrastructure concessions this year, says our correspondent in Lima. Peruvian President Ollanta Humala and his Finance Minister recently completed a nine-day swing through the Middle East from Feb. 14-22, visiting Israel, the Palestinian Territories, and Qatar to sign agreements on trade and promote investment opportunities. Upcoming auctions in Peru include the $6 billion second line of the Lima subway at the end of March, a $4 billion gas pipeline in June, and a $500 million international airport in Cusco sometime this year. “Peru has said it wants to become the hub of Middle East investment in Latin America,” says our correspondent. “Peru is looking for companies to invest in oil, gas, electricity, and the Middle East has money.” President Humala has already shown a desire to reach out to the region, having hosted the 2012 Summit of South American and Arab Countries that brought together political and ...
Don Giovanni of West’s international policies: The unrepentant sociopath whose conquests number in the thousands and who remains indifferent to the pain and suffering he’s caused, didn’t just remind me of my ex boyfriend. No, there was something more in his smug hubris, his unabated appetites, something that recalled dramas happening outside the theatre, in the Middle East, Latin America and Eastern Europe. And then it dawned on me: Don Giovanni’s predatory technique of seduction and abandonment is nothing less than the modus operandum of US Foreign Policy. As jilted politicos – from Noriega to the Shah of Iran to Saddam Hussein – can attest, the only thing worse than being an enemy of the US is being a former ally. And yet the amazing thing is, just as with the seductive Don, people keep falling for the same tired old lines. “I think you’re really special, and I want to liberate you. Of course I’m not only interested in your oil fields. Your people deserve an autonomous state.” And le ...
The report highlights the significant growth in the Indian aviation sector over the last decade. As per data from the Airports Authority of India (AAI), passenger throughput grew to 159 million (FY 13) and cargo throughput to 2.19 million MT (FY 13), registering an impressive growth of 13 per cent and 10 per cent CAGR respectively over the period FY 2003-2013. On the global front, aircrafts transported around 3.1 billion passengers and over 51.6 million tonnes of freight in 2013. The growth in passenger traffic has been led by the strong progress made by Middle East countries and supported by other emerging economies of Latin America, Africa and Asia-Pacific. However, developed economies of North America and Europe lagged behind in terms of growth in passenger traffic. The Asia Pacific Region promises to emerge as the largest aviation market by 2032. The most significant development in the Indian domestic market is the growing dominance of the low-cost carrier model, which in FY 2013 accounted for almost ...
Optimism for Next Generation Even though many in Africa struggle to afford life’s basic necessities, there is still considerable optimism about the future. A median of 50% believe children in their country today will be better off financially than their parents. Just 37% think children will be worse off. Optimism is especially widespread in Nigeria and Ghana, where nearly two-thirds say children will be better off. It is less common in Uganda and South Africa, where opinion is roughly divided between optimists and pessimists. Egypt is the least hopeful among the African Nations studied – just 22% predict children will be better off than their parents. Some of the wealthiest nations in the world are among the least hopeful about prospects for the next generation. Pessimism is common throughout Western Europe, as well as in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and Japan. Doubts about the future are also common in the Middle East. Once again, the most positive results are found in Asia and Latin America. China r ...
Israel is the largest recipient of US. aid in the entire world.  It receives more aid than that given to all the countries of sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, put together. Israel receives about $8.4 million dollars per day from the United States, and there is evidence that the total cost to American taxpayers is closer to $15 million a day.  Yet this information is almost never printed in American newspapers.  Coverage of the Middle East in general, and of Israel in particular, virtually never reports this enormous American connection with this region. Empowered by American money, Israel is occupying land that does not belong to it, is breaking numerous international laws and conventions of which it is a signatory, and is promulgating policies of brutality that have been condemned by the United Nations, the European Union, the National Council of Churches, Amnesty International, the International Red Cross, and numerous other international bodies. This truth is also rarely reported ...
Exactly where is the West, or the Middle East or Far East??? Is the world flat? No matter where you stand (U.S. or UK or EU, Iran, Russia, China, Latin America or Africa and so on) in this world there is a West or an East. So where did this outgrown thought begin? My guess is the UK as that would explain the ludicrous idea that the Americas would be West and anything in the other direction of the UK would be East. Does anyone have another way to explain this flat would ideology and why we maintain it?

DIFUNDIR EN EL EXTERIOR: Why venezuelan protests? Since Fidel Castro took power in the late 1950's, he’s had his eye on conquering Venezuela. The Cuban dictatorship sees Venezuela as the entry port and source of financing for taking the rest of Latin America. Their dream is to unite Latin America under Cuban leadership. Castro tried with military intervention in the 1960's (that’s what got him thrown out of OAS), with guerilla war in the 1970's, with street protests in the 1980's (known as “el caracazo”), and with two military coups in 1992 (led by Hugo Chávez). When all that failed, he tried the Manchurian Candidate method. Castro had infiltrated Venezuela at very high levels, including in the presidential palace Miraflores. He managed to get Chávez elected president in democratic elections. Once in power, in 1999, Chávez immediately executed a coup d’état in order to hold on to power indefinitely. This was masqueraded as a Constituting Constitutional Assembly, in which all ties to the exis ...

Egyptian Black Bloc During the Egyptian revolution and the struggles against the Mubarak regime, the Egyptian military and then the Morsi regime and the Muslim Brotherhood, several groups emerged modeled on the anarchist Black Blocs in Europe and North America, and possibly even Latin America. As the anonymous interviewee in the article below indicates, the original Egyptian Black Bloc was a social revolutionary, libertarian group that used the Black Bloc name and tactics to defend themselves and the Egyptian revolution from the various authoritarian groups vying for power in Egypt. However, it would appear that more recently a number of groups identifying themselves as “Black Bloc” have emerged which have allied themselves with the Egyptian military in its fight against the Muslim Brotherhood, an error equally fatal to freedom, equality, justice and the social revolution as collaboration between so-called “anarchists” and the Bolsheviks during the Russian Revolution. The interview was conducted b ...

I wonder, is the United States of America on the path of its own self-destruction because of the leaks and debt? Will the People's Republic of China will follow if the USA collapses or will it brutally take over Taiwan and nuke Japan? What about the Russian Federation, will it end up having a massive upheaval there and will the European Union implode? Will the drug cartels in Latin America overpower the governments there? Is there gonna be an Samson Option occurring in the Middle East? Will an African Second Great War occur (the Second Congo War being the first) and will the North and South Korea duke it out like its 1950? Will the recession worsen into a Second Great Depression? Will the Third World War end it? Human history is surely interesting, ain't it?
Airline Demand Hits Record Levels by Douglas A. McIntyre Airline demand not only rebounded out of the recession — it skyrocketed to new records. If international travel is any reasonably measure of the global economy on both business-travel and personal-travel levels, then businesses have reason to optimistic, especially the airlines. According to the The International Air Transport Association (IATA), airlines globally saw a 5.2% increase in passenger demand compared with 2012. The 2013 performance was in line with the average annual growth rate of the past 30 years. Capacity rose 4.8%, and load factor averaged 79.5%, a 0.4 point increase over 2012. Demand in international markets (5.4%) expanded at a slightly faster rate than domestic travel (4.9%). Strongest overall growth (domestic and international combined) was recorded by carriers in the Middle East (11.4%), followed by Asia-Pacific (7.1%), Latin America (6.3%) and Africa (5.2%). The slowest growth was in the developed markets of North America ( ...
PRESS RELEASE: Christian Peacemaker Teams Challenges Denial of Entry in Israel ` Contact: Jonathan Brenneman palestine-advocacy25, 2014) Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) has filed a brief with the Israeli High Court charging that Israel has been systematically denying their volunteers entry into the occupied Palestinian Territories (oPt). CPT is a faith-based initiative supported by Mennonites, Church of the Brethren, Quakers and several other Christian peace groups. Since 1993, CPT has sent violence-reduction teams to conflict settings in the Middle East, Haiti, Latin America, Europe and North America. CPT has maintained a violence-deterring presence in the West Bank city of Hebron since June 1995. Its work in Hebron involves monitoring the treatment of children and teachers as they walk through Israeli military checkpoints, providing a window into how Israel’s military occupation affects the lives of people living in the Hebron District, as well as supporting peacemaking efforts by Palestinians and Is ...

Nearly every significant culture has a migrant community in THE AMERICAS. For special mention: *Chinese – over four million all over the Americas. The one million in Latin America are less reached. Their numbers are being augmented by immigrants, especially from Mainland China. The latter need specialized ministry in order to reach them. *Japanese – around three million with communities in Brazil (1.4m), USA (1.2m) and Peru. *Muslims – mainly Arabs in Latin America, but increasing in numbers throughout the Americas via immigration from the Middle East. There are also South Asian Muslims in the Anglophone countries and Javanese Muslims in Suriname. Brazil is especially seeing Muslim growth. Events of the 21st Century have brought focus on these peoples and increased outreach to them. Many Arabs in Latin America are Christian and could be instrumental in reaching Muslims or enabling Latin Americans to do so.

ADMIN KONGSIKAN TULISAN DRP TAN SRI SANUSI JUNID UNTUK KITA RENUNG & FIKIRKAN :- When Tun M took over the govt the world could be divided into 5 groups : 1) The English-speaking democracies where all economic ideas were from English language sources, 2) The Communist world where similar communist economic ideas were presented in different languages, 3) The Muslim world of the Middle East where the Arab Muslims forget themselves with the riches which represent a small percentage of the profits earned by foreigners from their natural resources which were exploited by the foreigners on their behalf; this wealth the Muslims used to buy weapons which were used to kill one another among themselves, 4) The Catholics of Latin America who spent their borrowed money against their nations' unexploited wealth, 5) The Non-English Speaking Democracies comprising of France, Germany, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan.

Rolls Royce reports record sales in 2013 The international luxury car market has remained strong throughout the recession, and this is the fourth year of record sales for Rolls-Royce Motors, which dominates the super-luxury end of the market. Sales growth has slowed, however, compared with the 31% rise reported in 2011. Global growth for 2013 was on a par with 2012's, which was around 1%. Nevertheless, demand is still rising rapidly in China and the Middle East, where bespoke cars are particularly popular, as well as other developing market. This coming year should also see a recovery in European markets as well as further progress in newer markets in Latin America, where Rolls-Royce starting building out its dealership network last year. The company also recently opened new dealerships in Ukraine and Turkey, and is focusing on other developing markets such as India. The company's production base will remain in the UK, however - Britishness is part of the company's branding and the skills required to buil ...

The world in 2013 according to a Pope, China, and the Mideast By: Matikas Santos Videos: Ryan Leagogo, Cathy Miranda, Noy Morcoso, INQUIRER Photos; AFP, AP Photos: INQUIRER.net, Philippine Daily Inquirer, AFP, AP The election of Pope Francis, the first pope to come from Latin America, the emerging dominance of China in political affairs, and the ongoing unrest in the Middle East were among the stories that hogged the world headlines. China wasted no time in trying to assert its ownership over the West Philippine Sea and other perceived territories in Asia at the start of 2013, rattling its saber by sending warships to the disputed islands. The Philippines has raised the issue in the world court and has been assured protection by its No. 1 ally, the US. In February, the world was taken by surprise at the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and the subsequent election of the first Latin American Pope, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio who chose the name Francis. The 266th Pope of the Catholic Church, Francis mad ...

Black America has a long way to go we need to start to send our youth to make political and economic connections in the Middle East, Africa, Caribbean and Latin America. We need to send our children into all the Federal Law Enforcement and Military and Intelligence agencies. We must become more independent and self-reliant. Most of the time those groups or nations the white media condemns are the ones that blacks should support. Remember Mr. Mandela was on America's list of designated terrorist as I was myself on OFAC and other list and I am from one of the most powerful, famous and influential black families in America. We must flex on nations like France who exploit us by unification with the Creoles in the South, Caribbean and link with the Francophiles in Africa and those living in France. Just as we must take it to the British Royal Crown who continues to kill for our natural resources especially in the mining industry. Those of us blacks like myself who have Native American blood should take it too ...

Next we we visited the Federation for American Immigration Reform where we met with the President of FAIR, Mr. Daniel Stein, who took the time to discuss with us the framework of Immigration Reform in the US, its use as political leverage and their ideas behind curbing Immigration Reform to serve the national interest. The second part of the day was devoted to Latin America. We sat down with Mr. Philip French, a retired senior career diplomat who spent 30 years in the U.S. Foreign Service, serving in Latin America, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, in addition to two tours in the State Departme ...
Energy of mahindra:- Mahindra & Mahindra entered the energy sector in 2002, in response to growing demands for increased electric power in India.[38] Since then, more than 150,000 Mahindra Powerol engines and diesel generator sets (gensets) have been installed in India, offering standard proper quality power, as do most larger companies, in areas with arguably less relliable grid electricity. The inverters, batteries, and gensets are manufactured at three facilities in Pune (Maharastra), Chennai (Tamil Nadu), and Delhi; and 160 service points across India offer 24-7 support to most key markets. Powerol is present in countries across Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia—and expanding into the United Arab Emirates, Bangladesh, and Nepal.[38] Mahindra Powerol's energy services consist mostly of power leasing and telecom infrastructure management.[39] In 2006, it became a major market leader in the telecom segment (and in 2011, its market share passed 45 percent). In 2007, it won the F ...

However, some glitches such as mojibake (incorrect display of some languages' characters) still remain.

Overseas Chinese students demonstrated in many cities in Europe, America, the Middle East and Asia.There was a significant impact on the Chinese economy after the incident. Foreign loans to China were suspended by the World Bank, Asian Development Bank, and foreign governments; tourism revenue decreased from US$2.2 billion to US$1.8 billion.
Gary Pruitt, CEO, says cooperative to focus on Asia, the Middle East and Latin America for growth:
If you’re not aware already, please take note that Israel exports oppression well beyond its borders; well beyond the Middle East. In fact Israel has effectively served as a mercenary state for the United States; supplying, arming and funding a whole range of dictatorships and police-states throughout Latin America which had or have US support. Throughout the 1980’s, Israel was one of the prime suppliers of weaponry and munitions to Guatemala’s Efrian Rios Montt, who was recently indicted for genocide, until Guatemala’s High Court annulled the case. In Colombia too — where some 220,000 people have been killed in the civil war there, with 80% of the killings attributable to paramilitaries closely connected with the Colombian state military — Israel has been one of the main suppliers of conventional weaponry to the Colombia government; meaning equipment ranging from Rocket Launchers to assault rifles and shotguns. Another very recent case demonstrates that this pattern is alive and kicking today ...
Mapping How Workers Adjust to Trade Shocks Labor-market frictions, such as the costs for moving, firing and hiring, make labor adjustment costly. That’s why trade shocks, which affect wage and employment, can hurt the economy. In a recent working paper, Erhan Artuç, Daniel Lederman and *** Porto use an “estimator” to quantify the impact of the labor-mobility costs in developing countries. On average, the lifetime impact of such costs are equivalent to nearly five times the annual income for the average worker, which varies significantly across regions (5.45 times the income in South Asia, 5.34 in Latin America, 4.96 in Eastern Europe, 4.40 in Middle East and North Africa, 4.26 in Sub-Saharan Africa, and 3.30 in East Asia). Labor-mobility costs are negatively correlated with per capita gross domestic product, educational attainment and school quality, but they are positively associated with other costs and economic distortions. Labor-mobility costs can take a toll on the economy. It can take six y . ...
Spain is 23rd out of 60 countries for proficiency in English HOLIDAYMAKERS and expatriates in Spain who assume 'everyone will speak English' had better put their names down for a Spanish language course – the country ranks 23rd out of 60 for its linguistic abilities in Shakespeare's tongue. Whilst Sweden and Norway came out top of the list for having highest portion of citizens who speak English competently, Spain did not fare so well in the research carried out by EF Education First. The results of their third English Proficiency Index showed Asians are becoming more fluent, with far weaker levels of the language in Latin America and the Middle East. A direct relationship between the health of the economy and levels of investment in social programmes, and abilities in English, was found. Researchers based their results on a random sample of 750,000 adults in 60 countries worldwide in 2012, and five million in the same 60 countries over the six-year period comprising 2007 to 2012 inclusive. Vietnam and ...
Imperialist Rivals, Domestic Foes Rattle Racist U.S. Rulers THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2013 AT 12:49PM The U.S. ruling class needs a powerful military to carry out wars for maximum profit and control of resources and cheap labor. To that end it slaughters masses of workers and youth, from the Middle East to Bangladesh to Latin America. In particular, the military is essential to the bosses’ control of energy supplies, shipping routes, and pipelines. At stake is the rulers’ top-dog status over oil-hungry China, among others. The Pentagon war machine must prepare for broader wars with its imperialist rivals even as it confronts the conflicts now erupting around the world. At the moment, the Middle East and South Asia are in disarray: • Civil war and growing Russian influence in Syria; • Warlords battling for control of Libya; • Military coup in Egypt; • Al Qaeda bases in Somalia, Mali, Yemen and Syria; • Sectarian warfare in Iraq that threatens civil war and endangers oil supplies; • Threat of Ta ...
NSA Revelations Kill IBM Hardware Sales in China The first shot was fired on Monday. Teradata, which sells analytics tools for Big Data, warned that quarterly revenues plunged 21% in Asia and 19% in the Middle East and Africa. Wednesday evening, it was IBM’s turn to confess that its hardware sales in China had simply collapsed. Every word was colored by Edward Snowden’s revelations about the NSA’s hand-in-glove collaboration with American tech companies, from startups to mastodons like IBM. But the fiasco was tucked away under the lesser debacle of IBM’s overall revenues, which fell 4.1% from prior year, the sixth straight quarter of declines in a row. Software revenue inched up 1%, service revenue skidded 3%. At the hardware unit, Systems and Technology, revenue plunged 17%. Within that, sales of UNIX and Linux Power System servers plummeted a dizzying 38%. Governmental and corporate IT departments had just about stopped buying these machines. IBM quickly pointed out that there were some pockets ...
The World of Formula 1 Still based largely in Europe, Asia and Latin America have discovered the sport in recent years. Yet even while countries like Bahrain and Malaysia have picked up the event, F1 Grand Prix tickets and F1 merchandise items are hardly the money makers they once were in the United States. Here's an introduction to the world of Formula One racing. The F1 circuit is typically eighteen races, with about half the races in Europe. In the sport's early years almost all the events were in the UK or on the Continent, with a single event typically reserved for the US' legendary Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the State of Indiana. As the major centers for both F1 drivers and constructors, the UK, Germany and Italy are regular European hosts. In recent years the sport has grown in popularity in the Middle East and much of Asia-India has a constructor team and is regularly on the circuit, so too Abu Dhabi and especially Turkey. In East Asia, the peninsula home to Malaysia and Singapore is to be fou ...

DHL .waa 3 daxdaan nin magacyahooda. In 1969, Adrian Dalsey, Larry Hillblom and Robert Lynn (D, H, and L) founded DHL as a service shuttling bills of lading between San Francisco and Honolulu. The company grew rapidly and in a few years initiated service to the Philippines, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia, creating an entirely new industry of international door-to-door express service in the Pacific Basin. Steady expansion continued in the 1970's as DHL initiated service to Europe (1974), Latin America (1977), the Middle East (1978) and Africa (1978). The international delivery company was the first to bring air express to the Eastern Bloc countries in 1983 and to the People's Republic of China in 1986. Source(s):
The Reagan administration inherited a progra, or at least a problem, in Iran. The hostages came home on Inauguration Day, but now there were plenty of expatriate Iranians in touch with the CIA, not least the shah, who wished nothing better than to return to Teheran. Reagan's behavior was "extremely schizoid," in the opinion of Iranian Mansur Rafizadeh, a former intelligence officer who worked with the CIA until 1983. Rafizadeh believes that American policymakers decided very earlyon to throw in their lot with the Ayatollah Khomeini, expecting that Muslim fundamentalism would be the best defense against communism in the Middle East. Rafizadeh recounts that Bill Casey went to Ronald Reagan in September 1981 with a dual-track program. The president approved a year-long tryout. The CIA would fund disparate Iranian exile groups while simultaneously the United States would overlook Israeli arms shipments to Khomeini. On both tracks, gathering intelligence became the object. There is no evidence th ...

The relationship between Muslim-majority countries and the West is crucial and involves a number of major issues. The complexity of ideological and political relations and, above all, the phenomenon of attraction/repulsion can be observed both among politicians and intellectuals and among ordinary citizens. We certainly need some renewal of this relationship.   Historically and ideologically, the ‘West vs Islam’ dichotomy has been constructed through a process both fraught and complex. To this day, it shapes perceptions of East and West at both extremes of the binary equation.   There can be no substitute for frankness: A constant and implicit (and often explicit) feature of the relationship has been the imbalance of power and, as Malaysian thinker Chandra Muzaffar correctly notes, brute force.   There can be no substitute for confronting the question of justice and peace between civilisations and ideologies, of power and force, directly.   If recent evolution in the Middle East has demonstrated n ...

US Cyber Command: Documents Reveal Pentagon Launching Covert Cyber Attacks * In 2008, the Armed Forces Journal published a prescient piece by Colonel Charles W. Williamson III, a staff judge advocate with the Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Agency at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, the National Security Agency listening post focused on intercepting communications from Latin America, the Middle East and Europe. Titled “Carpet bombing in cyberspace,” Col. Williamson wrote that “America needs a network that can project power by building an af.mil robot network (botnet) that can direct such massive amounts of traffic to target computers that they can no longer communicate and become no more useful to our adversaries than hunks of metal and plastic. America needs the ability to carpet bomb in cyberspace to create the deterrent we lack.” While Williamson’s treatise was fanciful (a DDoS attack can’t bring down an opponent’s military forces, or for that matter a society’s ...

I want to thank our outstanding Ministers in the Foreign Office: Sayeeda Warsi, a foremost champion of freedom of religion; David Lidington, the best Europe Minister Britain has had in decades; Hugo Swire, pioneering new Embassies in Latin America; Alistair Burt, a picture of calm whatever the storm in the Middle East; Mark Simmonds, bringing new energy to Britain’s ties in Africa; And Stephen Green, revolutionising our support to British exporters.

My team and I returned yesterday from the UN General Assembly in New York.  We have fanned out across the corridors and chambers of the United Nations, working on dozens of issues from building up Libya’s security forces to helping Lebanon cope with refugees; from aiding Burma on the path to democracy to promoting p ...
“In Europe, the US, and Japan, we have governments that can only prevent an immediate collapse by borrowing and printing money that will never be paid back. On top of that, we have a financial system that only survived the 2008 crisis through a massive package of $20 trillion of fiat money which was printed out of thin air. One would have thought that by now the balance sheets of the bankrupt banks would have been repaired, but that is not the case. Instead, the banks are back to the same old games of leveraged loans and the dangerous use of enormous amounts of derivatives. Public and private debt is now 30% higher, in relation to GDP, than it was in 2007, and leveraged loans have jumped to 45% of total loans -- that’s 10% higher than before the 2008 collapse began. Also, interbank credit to Emerging Markets is at the highest level on record. So there is a massive debt buildup in Asia, Latin America, and in the Middle East. But in spite of the total buildup in debt around the world, the problems i ...
Assad Fears US Aggression by Stephen Lendman His fears are well-founded. He knows what he's up against. Longstanding US plans call for regime change. They remain firm. Assad's willingness to destroy his chemical weapons delayed US action. It didn't deter it. On September 25, Latin America's TeleSUR TV interviewed him in Damascus. "(T)he potential for a military offensive will always be present," he said. It can come "(e)ither under the pretext of chemical weapons, or at other times under different pretexts." More on what he said below. Permanent UN Security Council members continue discussing resolution language on Syria. Itar Tass quoted Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov saying negotiations are "going quite well." Draft resolution language should be finalized "very soon - within the next two days." Gatilov said it will include a UN Charter Chapter VII reference short of authorizing military force. A separate resolution would be required to do so. Russia forthrightly opposes force. It wants ...
"...people willing to put their lives on the line to protest against capitalist injustice are emerging everywhere, from the US to India, China and Japan, from Latin America to Africa, the Middle East to Western and Easter Europe. They are disparate and speak different languages, but they are not as few as may appear - and the greatest fear of the rulers is that these voices will start to reverberate and reinforce each other in solidarity. Aware that the odds are pulling us towards catastrophe, these actors are ready to act against all odds. Disappointed by twentieth-century Communism, they are ready to 'begin from the beginning' and reinvent it on a new basis. Decried by enemies as dangerous utopians, they are the only people who have really awakened from the utopian dream which holds most of us under its sway. They... are our only hope.' - Slavoj Žižek - First as Tragedy Then as Farce
not submit to US blackmail on James Petras says A US political commentator says Russia will never agree with US military intervention in Syria which he believes is a tactic to take the spotlight off its crumbling economy. Professor James Petras, who has written several books on the Latin America and Middle East, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Monday. “I don’t think Russia will submit to this blackmail. I don’t think Washington has a stand to carry out its policies. I think if Obama does go ahead with this bombing mission, he will face great opposition in the United States,” Petras said. He also said that US President Barack Obama faces “enormous internal difficulties in his attempt to distract attention by launching a war against Syria, [which] is a way of deflecting the forthcoming economic crisis because of internal difficulties.” The war rhetoric against Syria intensified after foreign-backed opposition forces accused the government of President Bashar al-Assad of launchi ...

My Newspaper Column (in English)- from July 7, 2013 Hallyu: Not there yet (or Hallyu’s steep climb) Are we truly as global as we think we are? Is Hallyu really a WAVE of culture sweeping the world? Or are we just propagandizing ourselves to feel better about the immense efforts we make for Hallyu? Or something in between? Nowadays Koreans celebrate what is believed to be the success of Hallyu, spreading Korean culture throughout the world. Whether on KBS, MBC, SBS or Arirang TV, you can’t turn on the radio or TV without hearing the word Hallyu multiple times in an hour. The spread of K-pop, K-dramas, and K-culture through Latin America, Middle East, Europe, Southeast Asia and pockets of North America has indeed been witnessed. Dae Jang Gum and Psy are known even in the Kalahari. And let’s also acknowledge some facts that have helped to drive the success of Korean dramas and pop music worldwide- but also apply to other countries as well (like Turkey). Ultra fast internet. Smart phone revolution. Inc ...
I am relieved and very happy that I am no longer living in Egypt - I am, however; thankful for the experience and learned much about Islam - the culture and it's people! Since - and however unfortunate it is - I have lost all respect for this country and Islam that allows Taqiyya and killing of the infidels all in the name of Allah! I will never understand the mind of man who does this. On that note, I received this e-mail today and am sharing it with those who may be considering a trip to the Middle East - however; I would not recommend it - Have a great 4th everyone and God Bless! The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. citizens to defer travel to Egypt and U.S. citizens living in Egypt to depart at this time because of the continuing political and social unrest.

Medicinal Effects of Rosella Hibiscus Sabdariffa Tea {ALSO KNOW AS SOBOLO} Hibiscus tea is the infusion made from the calyces (sepals) of the Hibiscus sabdariffa flower, a herbal tea drink consumed both hot and cold by people around the world. It is also referred to as rosella (another common name for the hibiscus flower), jamaica in Latin America, karkady in the Middle East, bissap in West Africa, red sorrel in the Caribbean, and other names in other regions.

Hibiscus tea contains 15-30% organic acids, including citric acid, maleic acid, and tartaric acid.

Growth in the developing world will remain solid, albeit slower than the frenetic growth rates seen during the pre-crisis boom period, as developing countries grapple with home-grown challenges brought on by capacity constraints in many middle income countries, says the World Bank’s latest Global Economic Prospects, issued today. Global GDP is expected to expand about 2.2 percent in this year and strengthen to 3.0 percent and 3.3 percent in 2014 and 2015. Developing-country GDP is now projected to be around 5.1 percent in 2013, strengthening to 5.6 percent and 5.7 percent in 2014 and 2015, respectively, with growth in Brazil, Russia, India and South Africa projected to remain weak. Looking at broader region-wide trends, the East Asia & Pacific Region is expected to grow by 7.3 percent this year; Europe & Central Asia by 2.8 percent; Latin America & the Caribbean by 3.3 percent; Middle East & North Africa by 2.5 percent; South Asia by 5.2 percent; and Sub-Saharan Africa by 4.9 percent.

From: War Times/ Tiempo de Guerras Washington's Wars and Occupations: Month in Review 31, 2013 'SAVING THE WORLD' ONE DISASTER AT A TIME Carlos Martinez cuts through the fog of rhetoric about Washington defense of freedom across the globe and explains why famed Uruguayan writer Eduardo Galeano's message to the U.S. is "Please don't save me!" At a recent reading of his new book, Children of the Days: A Calendar of Human History, Uruguayan author Eduardo Galeano berated Washington for disguising its imperial ambitions with the idealistic language of humanitarianism. Galeano poignantly exclaimed that everything the U.S. claims it wants to save, it inevitably destroys. With his usual biting wit, he announced," I would really please beg them, 'Please, don't save me. I don't want to saved.' " A survey of Washington's latest interventions in Latin America, the Middle East, and beyond indicates that our government’s penchant for saving countries by destroying them remains as present as ever. Indeed, today's O . ...

I'm just amazed that because of Roger Federer, I have been introduced to a huge, worldwide community of friends who share a common passion for the Swiss maestro. We come from many lands -- North America, Latin America, Australasia, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe. We are Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, agnostics, atheists, and more. We speak many languages and dialects. But when it comes to Roger, we have a common language. And when Roger comes to play, we put aside our differences and unite under the RF banner. Thank you, my friends. Here's to many more!

While on-the-ground covert operatives have been instrumental in training proxies and operating interrogation facilities, this is not the only point of convergence between Latin America policy and the Middle East. Continuation of direct involvement of those complicit in past atrocities indeed extends to policymakers, too. Elliott Abrams – one of the leading advocates for the Iraq war and a neoconservative intellectual at the Council on Foreign Relations – had a similarly dark history in South and Central America before moving on to the Middle East. A participant in the Iran-Contra affair, where he helped funnel money from arms sales to wantonly violent Nicaraguan militias seeking to overthrow the country's leftist government, Abrams also distinguished himself as a prominent figure attempting to minimize a massacre of civilians by the El Salvadoran military. Despite this dubious background, Abrams' career in Washington remained has remained intact. This has allowed him to publicly lobby to export to Ira ...
[cont]The primary theatre of war has since switched from Latin America to the Middle East, but many of the same tactics of that period – which caused so much devastation and engendered so much visceral anger – seem to have been redeployed on the other side of the world. As reported this week by the Guardian, recent investigations have suggested that Pentagon officials at the highest levels oversaw torture facilities during the war in Iraq. The allegations are decidedly gruesome: rooms used for interrogating detainees stained with blood; children tied into extreme stress positions with their bodies beaten to discoloration. Most chillingly, a veteran of the United States' "dirty war" in El Salvador was reported to have been brought in to personally oversee the interrogation facilities. As described by Iraqi officials this program was condoned at the highest levels of the US military and utilized "all means of torture to make the detainee confess … using electricity, hanging him upside down, pulling ou ...

Thailand Beating China With Toyota Means Shipping Boom Toyota Motor Corp. (7203)’s success in selling Thai-made vehicles to the Middle East and Latin America is fueling a boom for car carriers. Exports of Hilux pickup trucks and Fortuner SUVs helped the Southeast Asian nation overtake China as Toyota’s third-biggest global production hub last year. That growth helped spur Nippon Yusen K.K., the world’s biggest operator of the roll-on, roll- off ships, to forecast it will carry 3.45 million vehicles this fiscal year, the most in five years. Toyota has three factories in the country and Honda Motor Co. and Nissan Motor Co. plan to spend a combined $850 million to boost capacity in Thailand. All of them use the country as an export base for other developing countries in contrast to China where they produce predominantly for the domestic market. That has Nippon Yusen, which counts Toyota as its biggest customer, adding ships and Mitsui O.S.K. Lines Ltd. also predicted record volume for cars. “Thailand ...
London, Feb 19 (ANI): The internet may appear to be an almost random mass of information, but researchers said that in fact, there is a 'Kevin Bacon' effect - meaning a web page is connected to others by just 19 clicks. The statistic echoes the famous 'Six degrees of Kevin Bacon' game, which claims anyone on Earth can be linked to the actor through just six people. The Opte project is one of several aiming to show the web graphically. In the image, based on 2005 data, red lines represent links between web pages in Asia, green for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, blue for North America, yellow for Latin America and white for unknown IP addresses. "As the Web began to grow in the 1990s, it was thought that it most probably had the properties of a random network," the Daily Mail quoted Hungarian physicist Albert-Laszlo Barabasi as saying. The researchers originally determined this by constructing algorithms that collected all the links on a Web page and then followed them to their destinations, and repeat ...
American Airlines merges with US Airways Fort Worth, Texas & Tempe, Arizona, February 15, 2013 AMR Corporation-owned American Airlines and US Airways will join forces to become the world's largest airline operating under the American Airlines brand.

Global investment banks based in Europe and the U.S., facing regulatory and cost-cutting pressures at home, are losing market share in emerging economies to smaller domestic competitors. Credit Suisse Group AG, Morgan Stanley and Citigroup Inc. are among Western securities firms seeing the biggest erosion in some developing markets, according to data compiled by Freeman & Co., a New York-based consulting company. Their share of investment-banking fees is being diluted by local banks including Brazil’s Grupo BTG Pactual SA, Russia’s VTB Capital and China’s Citic Securities Co., the data show. The share of fees for U.S. and Western European firms in Latin America, the Middle East, China, India, Russia and Eastern Europe plunged to 43 percent last year from 69 percent in 2005, according to Freeman. The shift coincides with a decline in lending by European banks in Emerging Markets, making it harder to compete for assignments, the data show.

The drones are unpopular with many people, more so for the one's upon which the missiles drop. I am not fond of them either. I will say this. Of the tens of thousands of civilians killed around the globe---within European/Russian/Chinese/US created conflicts scattered across Africa, Middle East, S. America, Latin America, Indonesia---only a smattering of these deaths are caused by drones. Drones are an easily identifiable evil, technology and people gone bad. What of the other tens of thousands of civilians--- bones and lives discarded and forgotten in some stagnant jungle mud hole--- in all those "conflicts" created by powerful entities, the chessboard players of human lives. Who speaks for those who meet their death in less glamorous methods? Lately there are complaints by Minnesota Public Radio listeners of MPR's usage of BBC broadcasts. Among other stories BBC does cover a number of these lesser known conflicts around the world, shedding some light on shadowy players involved. Apparently MN doesn't wa ...

Public Forum on "Mediating Urbanization in Democracies" Venue:Chinar Deck Suite 5th Floor (near the Deck Restaurant), India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi 110003 (Entry through Gate 1); Time:Thursday, December 13, 2012 from 4.00 pm - 6.00 pm The last few years has seen an increasing recognition that the future of humankind is to be found in cities, and that the dramatic growth of mega-cities, especially in the south, is accompanied by the rise of large populations of the urban poor. But political decision-making over these spaces and populations is increasingly framed in terms of ‘informal governance’, based on the recognition that informal institutions and practices play a critical role in poor people’s everyday lives. There is a greater need for us to understand the ways in which the burgeoning influx from rural areas navigate the physical, cultural and political spaces in the cities. The speakers, whose work focuses on Africa, Latin America, Asia and the Middle East, address the ways in wh ...

Austin ranks in world’s fastest-growing economies! Austin is one of only five metropolitan areas in all of North America to rank in the top 70 of the 300 fastest-growing metropolitan economies worldwide, according to a Friday report. Austin ranks No. 61 after experiencing a major recession and partial economic recovery, according to the report by the Metropolitan Policy Program at the D.C.-based Brookings Institution. From 2011 to 2012, employment in the Austin metro area increased by 3.1 percent as real GDP per capita rose by 0.9 percent. Other variables factored in included population — the Austin area registered nearly 1.8 million people — and nominal GDP. Houston is the highest ranked U.S. city on the list at No. 40, followed by San Jose, Calif. with No. 46; Salt Lake City at No. 56; and Louisville, Ky. next at No. 57. Cities in Asia, the Middle East and Latin America dominating the field. Still, China reigned supreme, with 34 separate metropolitan areas in the country making the list for their ...
The priority for this new coalition of Hispanics and Blacks should be to control the narrative/message by owning relevant news media outlets. I know that many of us are feeling very politically empowered right now because of this decisive victory, but I would not be so optimistic in the long term. We can be confident of transient victories, perhaps for another two cycles or so by taking advantage of the shifting demographics, but as long as minorities don't find a way to own "relevant“ news media outlets, those clowns will always control the message/narrative. And that's why they have been able to control the political landscape in other countries where they are the minorities (numbers-wise). Whites still manage to control a huge part of the political landscape in all of Latin America, South America, Central America, The Caribbean, some parts of the Arabian & Asian Peninsulas, and in most parts of Africa. Only few countries outside of China and the Middle East have effectively pushed back against the W ...

Child marriage has a direct impact on girls accessing secondary education. Child marriage is a global problem: 10 million girls under the age of 18 marry each year, many as young as 8. In developing countries, 1 in every 3 girls marries before they are 18. The practice is most prevalent in South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, and in some parts of Latin America, the Caribbean and the Middle East. In several countries in West Africa and in
Sky Arts Channel Don McCullin [photographer] : Tuesday 20 November at 9pm With images described by critics as ‘candles you couldn’t extinguish and stains you couldn’t remove’ the award-winning photo-journalist talks candidly about the inhumanity he has witnessed in his career as a prominent war photographer. McCullin started his career as an ambitious and gifted photographer on Fleet Street and quickly gained a reputation for being the best in his field. He has documented conflicts including troubles in Indochina, Latin America and the Middle East. Talking through some of his most iconic works to date, the photographer opens up to Sir Michael about capturing images in warzones and the physical and psychological strain he’s suffered for his art. “I’d been sleeping near a body, which I didn’t know was there, that’s what war’s like, you sleep with the dead, you embrace the dead, the smell of them, the sight of them.”

Romney casts Obama's Foreign Policy as weak, dangerous Tue, Oct 9th, 2012 9:41 am BdST Lexington, Virginia, Oct 09 (bdnews24.com/Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney delivered a sweeping critique on Monday of President Barack Obama's handling of threats in the Middle East, saying Obama's lack of leadership had made the volatile region more dangerous. In what his campaign called a major Foreign Policy address, Romney called for a more assertive use of American influence in the Middle East, Europe, Asia and Latin America. Romney, speaking before the white-uniformed cadets at Virginia Military Institute, questioned Obama's handling of the episode in Libya last month in which US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed after the US consulate in Benghazi came under militant attack. The former Massachusetts governor also accused Obama of failing to use US diplomacy to shape events in Iran, Iraq, Israel, Syria, Russia and elsewhere. "The president is fond of saying that, ...

"Capitalist(free-marekt) rulers continue to pose as the progenitors of democracy even as they subvert it, not only at home but throughout Latin America, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Any nation that is not “investor friendly,” that attempts to use its land, labor, capital, natural resources, and markets in a self-developing manner, outside the dominion of transnational corporate hegemony, runs the risk of being demonized and targeted as “a threat to U.S. national security.” ~ Michael Parenti ie.

Check this out: The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. (Revelation 13:1 NIV) On September 17, 1973, The Club of Rome, released a Report called the "Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System" which was prepared by Directors Mihajlo Mesarovic and Eduard Pestel as part of the "Strategy for Survival Project". This revealed the Club's goal of dividing the world into ten political/economic regions... which would unite the entire world under a single form of government. These regions are: North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Japan, Rest of Developed World, Latin America, Middle East, Rest of Africa, South and Southeast Asia, and China. The same plan was published in a Club of Rome book called Mankind at the Turning Point, which said: "The solution of these crises can be developed only in a global context with full and explicit recognition of t ...
Racism doesn't have a specific race, just a specific agenda. Hatred towards any race simply because of ethinicity is racism and has been an on going problem. However the seed child of racial hatred has sponded, and has always spond an economic class inferoirity and superiority segregation, which is also the offspring of prejudice, bias and racism. Seperating rich and poor and creating a superior hierarchy is just recreating and paving the roads which lead to slavery, the holocaust, the Irish massacres, the bloody Queen Mary's crucades, Asian American(AA) suppressives, Anglo American's (AA) migrations to the new found land, the Native America massacres, Italian, Latin America plight for equality and African America (AA) and the massacres left in there wake, also, the wars in the Middle East, as well as each World War!

Ok..So I was just looking at the election websites for Romney and Obama. And it has a list of where the respective candidates stand on the issues. The first thing you see on Obama's page is a list of issues... Jobs, education, environment, equal rights, Health Care, national security, taxes and lastly women's health. Just to name a few. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that these are THE most important issues! Then you go to the Romney website, his list looks like this... The first 8 on he's list...Afghanistan & Pakistan, China & East Asia, Iran, Israel, Latin America, Middle East, National Defense, Russia. WHY IN THE WORLD SHOULD THESES COUNTIES EVER BE ON ANY POLITICAL CANDIDATES WEBSITE! And why are they ISSUES?

In June, 1984, The Study and Research Section of the U.S. State Department drew up Report No. 110 entitled "The Libyan Question" which emphasized the contrary role played by Libya against American policies and against what the report referred to as "American interests in the Arab World and Africa". The report focused on the role of Colonel Moammar Qaddafi in impeding American initiatives for a political settlement in the Middle East, starting with the Camp David Accord in 1979 and ending with the initiative of President Reagan in 1982. The report also addressed the Libyan support of forces hostile to the United States in Central and Latin America, and the danger that such support directly posed to the strategic security of the United States. The report stated that since the evacuation of the American forces from the Wheelis base on the 11th of June, 1970, American control over Libyan political decisions had ceased to exist. The report suggested that measures be taken to restore American influence in order ...

Many people who migrate for employment undergo very difficult situations. What is particularly striking about domestic workers is their invisibility. Once they come to the country, they disappear into people's homes. Liesl Gerntholtz, the Director of the Women's Rights Division of Human Rights Watch, says one of the major problems they have found in their latest research (mainly in Asia and the Middle East) is that labor law does not recognize domestic workers as workers, so they are therefore not well protected. "More typically we find that they don't have days off they are not paid properly, they are forced to work very long hours and in unhealthy conditions. In South Africa the law does apply to domestic workers. They are entitled to leave, a minimum wage, a number of protections all workers have. That is why I say South Africa is ahead of the curve we just hope they will take a leadership role on the convention. And encourage their allies to do the same." In a very thorough and insightful report, HRW ...
The increase in the number of hungry people was blamed on lower incomes and increased unemployment, which in turn reduced access to food by the poor, the UN agency said. But it contrasted sharply with evidence that much of the developed world is richer than ever before. WORLD HUNGER Asia-Pacific: 642m Sub-Saharan Africa: 265m Latin America and Caribbean: 53m Middle East and North Africa: 42m Developed world: 15m Source: FAO "It's the first time in human history that we have so many hungry people in the world," said FAO spokesman Kostas Stamoulis, director of the organisation's development department. "And that's a contradiction, because a lot of the world is very rich despite the economic crisis." Mr Diouf urged governments to provide development and economic assistance to boost agriculture, particularly by smallholder farmers. "Investment in agriculture must be increased because for the majority of poor countries a healthy agricultural sector is essential to overcome poverty and hunger and is a pre-requi ...

The average age for Europe is 43 years old. East Asia: 29 South Asia (including India) 21 - 24 Middle East: 25 Latin America: 27 Africa: 18 Simply put, in 40 years time nearly half of the population of Europe today will be dead.(average life expectancy is 78) only 2/3 will be replaced. Meanwhile, elsewhere half of the population is younger than 25, which means in 40 years time, minus desease and war, most of the people alive today in those countries will still be alive. The average person in these countries can more so relate to an American in there 20's than can the average European, since how they are on average significantly older. This will help predict future economic trade and socialization between the current generation of 20 somethings and future generations (especially countries with an average population in their 20's).

According to Noam Chomsky: America has always supported fundamentalist elements, groups, dictatorships, and pseudo-democracy(Where the concentration of power and wealth rests with a few elites) across the globe in opposition to authentic and real democracy to take its roots within a developing country, because that would mean the a major role and say of the public in the policy matters and ultimately their interests would be undermined. This has been the American Policy since WWII in South East Asia (Indonesia; Soharto, Pakistan; various Military dictatorships, Vietnam etc) Middle East (All dictatorships who have been given patronage as far as they served Western and U.S oil interests) and the story of Latin America was very much clear (almost all dictators were U.S allies except Cuba) U.S has only supported democracy in one case viz when their vested interests were carried out by the ruling elites.
