when sexual assault goes public: #beenrapedneverreported and the presumption of innocence

laura k at wmtc - 21 hours ago
The revelations about Jian Ghomeshi hit my Facebook feed in waves. First many friends were shocked by CBC's announcement that they were "severing their relationship" with the longtime and very popular radio host. I don't listen to radio and I'm always surprised at how many people do. Then came Ghomeshi's own statement, which one friend very perceptively recognized as likely Ghomeshi's attempt to get ahead of a story in which he would be accused of assault. Then came his victims - now 14 people - who have courageously come forward to tell their stories. Despite the corroboratio... more »

Mashal Khan Takkar: Birth And Death of Pakistan

Saman Mohammadi at The Excavator - 22 hours ago
This site has had a lot of content on Pakistan and Afghanistan in the last little while, from a variety of perspectives and viewpoints. The problems in these two countries will only grow larger in the coming years, so the more history lessons, the better. Understanding Pakistan is so important, especially since its role in Afghanistan and the region will increase as the U.S. and NATO pull out of the area by the end of this year. Pakistan is a cocktail of traditions, faiths, and peoples so it has always been a fascinating place to read about. But, the more one looks into its histo... more »

US Brings Brush Fires and Broken Promises to Beijing

Land Destroyer at Land Destroyer - 23 hours ago
*November 16, 2014 *(Tony Cartalucci - NEO) - In reality, nothing was intended to be decided during US President Barrack Obama's visit to Beijing, China. US policy regarding China has been more or less set for decades and only superficial, rhetorical changes are made year-to-year for a variety of shorter-term political reasons. And despite the language used to market America's foreign policy both at home and abroad, what US President Obama is bringing with him to Beijing is yet another attempt to reassert geopolitical, military, and economic hegemony over China not only directly, ... more »

Situated close to the halfway point between Moscow and New York City, Thule Air Base is a remnant of the US's drive to create global staging areas for operations against the Soviet Union during the Cold War.

"Conversations are efforts toward good relations. They are an elementary form of reciprocity. They are the exercise of our love for each other. They are the enemies of our loneliness, our doubt, our anxiety, our tendencies to abdicate. To continue to be in good conversation over our enormous and terrifying problems is to be calling out to each other in the night. If we attend with imagination and devotion to our conversations, we will find what we need; and someone among us will act—it does not matter whom—and we will survive." — Barry Lopez

Many of us have fallen into self-defeating cycles-behaving badly, leading to a lowered sense of self-worth, leading to more negative behaviors.
