In the late 1990s, the Filipinos were aghast over the discovery of factories—owned by Taiwanese “businessmen”—that employed children as slave labor. The children were practically housed in cages, and brought out only to work and be fed, then brought back at night to their cage sleeping quarters. Needless to say, the mere tots were never paid for their labor and lived wretchedness like the way the Chinese suffered in the hands of the…Continue

The Graduate Certificate in Advanced Conflict Resolution Practice offers students the fundamentals of applied conflict resolution and advanced training in the conflict resolution “skill-set.” It is intended to meet the needs of those individuals who seek more expertise in conflict resolution and are mainly interested in becoming practitioners in the field. It may also be appropriate for professionals who have already earned a graduate degree in their professional area, but who would benefit…Continue

Yesterday I flew home from a medical appointment in Singapore (yes, aid workers also tend to be medical jet-setters…. I think by now I have seen doctors in over 15 countries) and while I was waiting in line to check-in at the airport, a funny thing happened.
I ran into myself.
Not slapstick style into a mirror, of course…. It was not actually me. But I did meet someone who felt so eerily recognizable; she could hardly have been a total stranger. I felt somehow drawn to…

Happy Women’s Day to all the women of the planet!
Rulership over the past historic epochs in our planet has been markedly a one-sided thing: an overstress on the Masculine principle as underlying precept. In all the major sectors of society thereof, governance, inclusive of management principles, were largely dominated by the masculine principle. Let me share some notes about the matter.
This analyst has…Continue

8 March- Women and the People’s Revolution

8 March is the…Continue

The month of March just commenced as I write this note. It seems that, as of this writing, the ancient echoes of history are reminding the archaic royal states of pan-Arabia of the cryptic message “beware the Ides of March!”
The tumult of pan-Arabia (all territories covered by Arabs of diverse ethnicities) is clearly sweeping the dirt of the ancien regime, regardless of the nature of the states there: republic or…Continue

Bad Guys and Good Guys.
By: Firouzeh Afsharnia
Well. 2011 certainly started with a bang. I don’t know whether it is the winding down of the Mayan calendar, or the alignment of the astral bodies which has triggered the cascade of what some call events rivaling the fall of the soviet empire.
I have been permanently tethered to Al Jezeera. Not just because unlike its American counterparts, it offers actual…Continue
