Nepalese People had high expectations of positive reformation in the country after the democratic government came into power by ending all forms of feudalism. People were waiting to see their day dreaming to make Nepal as a Switzerland of the East. But unfortunately, when they came in to power they believed that democracy meant do anything. Nepali people are getting fed up with their politicians, who have left the nation's problem far behind.

As outcomes of the new Nepal people are…

COMMERCIALIZING BIODIVERSITY IN COLOMBIA

COMMERCIALIZING BIODIVERSITY IN COLOMBIA

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Should biodiversity be commercialized? What are the stakes in commercialization? What are the costs, and who pay for them?

Colombia is home to 10% of the world’s biodiversity, a resource that its stakeholders wish to leverage in the market. Such an option comes at a time when biotechnology had grown to such a level that can aid biodiversity in sustaining itself.

Saudi criticism of Syrian president Assad isolates Iran but fails to address key issues

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

By James M. Dorsey

Saudi King Abdullah’s call on Syrian president Bashar al Assad to embrace reform and his withdrawal from Damascus of the kingdom’s ambassador has boosted hopes of the international community coming together to force a halt to the bloodshed in Syria.

The Saudi move has prompted other Gulf states to follow suit in pulling their representatives out of the Syrian…

Quantum Leap Towards Peace Negotiation Through Mediation in Instanbul

The UN’s first resolution for peace mediation conference July 5th in Instanbul gained little media attention. However, this is an epic event, symbolizing the UN’s new efforts to use mediation in the peace process. Using the strategies outlined in my book ‘Elusive Peace: How Modern Diplomatic Strategies Could Better Resolve World Conflicts’ emphasis on giving women larger roles in peace negotiations is essential. Women consistently bring issues to the peace table that men in…

Syrian president unites international community in condemnation of his violence

Monday, August 8, 2011

By James M. Dorsey

Syrian president Bashar al Assad has succeeded where US and European diplomacy failed: five months into anti-government demonstrations demanding his resignation, Mr. Assad has united the international community in decrying the brutality of his failed effort to crush the protests.

Increasingly cornered, Mr. Assad failed in the past week to read the writing on the wall. His ferocious attack on Hama, Syria’s…

INDEXING AFRICA-SPECIFIC SCIENTIFIC INNOVATIONS

INDEXING AFRICA-SPECIFIC SCIENTIFIC INNOVATIONS

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

There seems to have been an abusive employment of universalistic yardsticks to measure scientific innovations across diverse countries. For instance, the preponderance on formalistic institutional developments have tended to favor Northern economies that have built universities and think-tanks across the centuries.

Semantic shifts in “terrorism”: the demonization of Muslims in the mainstream media.

The recent terrorist tragedy in Norway has garnered major attention in the news as of late, and also sparked much outrage at the instant accusations launched against Muslims for the attack. The media ran purely on speculation that the attacks were linked to an Islamist group based on incomplete and unverified information, and although the real culprit, a blonde and blue eyed Norwegian, has now been caught, the vast majority of the media has shown that so-called “Islamic” terrorists and…

By JAMES M. DORSEY

AL ARABIYA

The videos of the Syrian military shelling some of the country’s cities and Libyan forces pounding rebel-held towns present a dramatic picture of relations between the military and civil society across the Middle East and North Africa.

Also, scenes of Egyptians protesting the armed forces’ alleged efforts to derail their revolution and Bahrainis being crushed by security forces produce a picture of a popular Arab revolt sweeping across two…
