The climate in a certain place does’ not change very much from year to year even though the weather may change a great deal from season to season. So when people talk about climate, they are not talking about the weather…Continue

For the longest time, Israeli governments have explained their resistance to Palestinian statehood by pointing to the Palestinians' and the Arab world's democracy deficit.
The dishonesty of that explanation has now been exposed to even the most credulous by the reaction of Israel's government to the democratic revolutions sweeping the region. We are now told by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his government that the overthrow of Tunisia's and Egypt's rulers and the challenges to…Continue

Good day to you fellow global citizens!
The world reels anarchic over the geological ramblings in Japan-New Zealand-China and the tumult of the Arab peoples. These events cast veils on the clarity of the economic boom now going on in Asia, and so let me be among those who will project the boom side every now and then. Among such good news is the readiness of Asian banks for the bigger economic battles ahead, a trend that…Continue

A note on life....
My cousin (10) asked me last summer why do we live if all die. She didn't understand why everyone was afraid of dieing as we all die eventually. I obviously could not give her the answer I wished for, so I decided to settle down for ..."because it's fun". In that particular moment, I was quiet embarrassed about my answer and trying to calm me down by saying that "in few years I will tell her the truth (whatever that was)". But, then (some months after) I…Continue

Just last night I was shocked to see the little children running after the young boys aged 13-15years shooting at other... the police barely able to shoot at the guilty or adress them since the street was overwhelmed with people and cars trying to see who is shooting who... I couldn't sleep last night thinking how sad it was that major drug lords are using our next generation to kill each other!

Good afternoon from the Philippine highlands!
Japan did suffer miserably from the catastrophe of a double-whammy temblor cum tsunami that walloped it recently. Deaths are now in the thousands, damage to property at past $183 Billion or 3.6% of its $5 Trillion GDP, citizens’ morale is badly eroded (more so that nuke fallout is imminent, aftershocks that followed), and the graphic images of the tragically affected areas are…Continue

Why is education so vital in the expansion of rights for women? Education allows for the empowerment of women to control their own destiny. It allows the woman to remove familial responsibility economically, socially and politically; empowering them to move into positions of leadership within their communities, locally and globally. Though when it comes to giving women access to education the approach appears much more difficult considering certain stagnant…Continue
