How can the race question not be one of the key issues of concern for those who are for a better life for all South Africans? asks Sehlare Makgetlaneng.
There has been a dialectical and organic link between the class question and the race question in South Africa from the period since the inception of capitalism to the present post-settler colonial era of the country. Capitalism since its…Continue

What type of person comes to your mind when you hear the following words?: “Criminal, Tyrant, Murderer, Terrorist, Rapist.”
How about these words?: “Leader, Politician, Dictator, President, Ambassador.”
Chances are, you most likely pictured some sort of man when you read these words. What is the meaning of this? Of course, this does not mean that all men should be labeled with these terms. However, as several of the speakers at the Newark Peace Education…

USA and Iran: Pride and prejudice.
The most frequent question to me during my three visits to Iran was: How can we convince the West that our country is not going to produce nuclear weapons? The question I hear in Europe and USA is: When will Iran have nuclear weapons? There seems to be a need for a dialogue. No one wants a war. It might still happen and may escalate into a nuclear genocide.
Iran's nuclear program -…Continue

I was in Los Angeles this past weekend for the 50th reunion (!) of my North Hollywood High School class of 1961. Classmate Jack recounted how, about 10 years ago, he phased out of his general surgery practice and into the field of functional medicine. It was as if he’d worked himself out of a job in surgery as he’d begun treating his surgical patients à la functional medicine and found that in so many cases they no longer needed surgery.
It dawned on me that functional…Continue

somaliaTogether we must fight piracy
By Lene Espersen, Danish Minister for Foreign Affairs.
The fight against piracy can’t be underestimated. Piracy is a breach to the most fundamental principles of the modern civilization. In the worst hit areas off the Horn of Africa no seafarers – be it on a merchant ship or even a yacht – can be safe at sea.
Today more than 600 seafarers are being kept as hostages by Somali pirates. They are all innocent…Continue

I thought the following would be of interest to the readers of this blog. Good points are raised, and although I might not agree with all of it the points and suggestions, the value is in, at the very least, the discussion of creating such a unit of commandos as part of the military.

Am finishing my study on female inmates facing drug related cases. Its core relates on emphatic communication being practiced in female jails.
Any resourceful websites and reading materials on this topic as well as comments and ideas in my study will be very helpful.
DR. ROLANDO Z. GANAC
My latest is an out-of-the-box piece co-written with Andrea Bartoli (Director of the S-CAR at GMU) which asks:
"Imagine back in 2010 if instead of masked men with guns, trained for intense warfare at sea, boarding a ship in the dead of night, the IDF had dispatched an elite unit of conflict resolution specialists. Could the tragedy at sea been averted?" …
