Apartheid (13 Aug 2009)
Apartheid has also been labeled a war crime in international conflicts under Additional Protocol I to the Geneva Conventions. Protocol I lists as grave breaches apartheid "and other inhuman and degrading practices involving outrages upon personal dignity, based on racial discrimination," though these would only be grave breaches during international armed conflict. Apartheid in America ended after the 1960s riots; in South Africa after the Sowet riots, not because of any epithany on the part of the oppressors. These riots threatened the whole economic structure of the oppressors plus enlisted the disapproval of the whole world. Apartheid South Africa was based on an "us here, them there" formula of territorial segregation in which the white-ruled areas consisted of 87 percent of the country, including the big cities and most of the arable land. Nominally independent bantustans, forming a horseshoe-shaped archipelago along the nation's outskirts, made up the remaining 13 percent of the land.

hillary clinton (06 Aug 2009)
Hillary Clinton has done her homework on environmental and energy issues. A member of the Environment and Public Works Committee during her six and a half years in the Senate, she has sponsored or cosponsored nearly 400 legislative proposals related to energy and the environment. Hillary Clinton was once thought to have had the Democratic nomination sewn up, but if current polls are any indication, she could conceivably lose not only the Iowa caucus, but also the primaries in New Hampshire and South Carolina. Since these states became the major test of presidential aspirations, no Democrat or Republican has ever gotten the nomination after losing all three. Hillary Clinton will be quickly confirmed as secretary of state. If she is, approving senators will be guilty of gross dereliction of duty.
Is Apartheid over? (13 Aug 2009)
Apartheid is between people, and now I am not speaking about race/color I am talking about society in general. For instance, the rich and the poor don't live next to one another. Apartheid is a policy of racial segregation maintained in South Africa from 1948 to 1991. The policy established the doctrine of 'separate development' whereby South African blacks were segregated into reserves known as 'homelands' and subjected to residential and occupational restrictions. Apartheid is a cultural thing. According to a CBS news report delivered by Dan Rather, it only appears inhumane to our "Western eyes.".If we understood the culture of the country that has instituted apartheid, we would realize that apartheid is not about a dominant group exerting control, perpetuating inequality, and disempowering another group.
Is Branding necessary? (24 Aug 2009)
Branding is absolutely necessary for any given company and now is a better time to do it than ever. There are a variety of outlets for all budgets and more businesses must realize that over time, this method can prove to be extremely beneficial. Branding is very important to the corporation, because the more visible the brand is in the marketplace, the more visible the company is, and therefore the more exposure to potential revenue. If a company successfully places its brand in a position to be the predominant signifier of a category of product or service, that brand will be very difficult to supplant. Branding is not about designing business cards, stationery, logos and the like. Read MoreOutlaw, branding is about meaning management.
Israel and apartheid (13 Aug 2009)
Israel remains the belligerent occupant of the OPT as they are territories over which Israel does not possess sovereignty but only a temporary right of administration. Consequently, Israel must abide by the relevant rules of the law of armed conflict—principally the provisions of the Hague Regulations of 1907 and the Fourth Geneva Convention of 1949—in its administration of the territories. Israel would be under no obligation to grant them citizenship, just as Israelis living in Palestine (Jews who choose to remain in Maaleh Adumim or Hebron, for example, former 'settlers') would retain Israeli citizenship. This addresses Israeli concerns about the integrity of their state. Israel is building what it calls a security wall between the West Bank and Israel. Not only that, it weaves its way through Palestinian farms, separating farmers from their land.

Jomo Kenyatta (18 Aug 2009)
Kenya's capital city Nairobi is host to a mix of people, places and sights that could easily entice any traveler. Most travelers end up booking flights to Nairobi as a stop on their way to a Kenya safari. Kenyatta guided his nation for fourteen years. Although there were several scandals, and he was supposed to have amassed a large fortune, the people of Kenya remained loyal to him and grateful for the lifetime of devotion he had given to the cause of their freedom. Kenya, for its part, had forty different tribes that spoke various dialects, which would have to be amalgamated into a nation with a common identity upon gaining independence. Israel's advice could be helpful in avoiding mistakes.

Learn about Kenya. (19 Aug 2009)
Kenya is not Rwanda, and reports of a "majority" and "minority" tribe engaged in a struggle to the death are widely off the mark. In reality, all of Kenya's leaders know that in order to govern the country they must put together a coalition of interest groups from many regions. Kenya is situated right along the equator, on the eastern coast of the African continent. Its coastal region is on the southeast, and to the east lies Somalia. Kenya is located in the eastern part of Africa. It has an area of about 150,000 square kilometers.

Lockerbie is situated on the A74(M), which gives easy access to Edinburgh, Glasgow and the north and also to Carlisle, the Lake District and the south. The town also possesses a busy railway station on the main Glasgow to London line. Lockerbie is in a unique position: although the station is within the ScotRail franchise, currently operated by First ScotRail , no services operated by First ScotRail stop there. The station is manned by ScotRail staff, and I want to use this opportunity to pay tribute to their professionalism and dedication, which is much appreciated by all my constituents who use the station. Lockerbie is a town in the Dumfries and Galloway region of south-western Scotland. It is situated approximately 75 miles from Glasgow and 20 miles from the English border.

Maasai Mara is world famous for the big game. Together with the adjoining Serengeti, it is one of the only places in the world where it is still possible to see vast herds of grazing animals.

Nelson Mandela and Apartheid (15 Aug 2009)
Nelson Mandela is one of the most respected people in the world. For countless reasons he is a huge hero. Nelson Mandela is free from prison but not from debt. President Mandela and all of the people of southern Africa are paying the cost of keeping him in prison. Nelson Mandela is a great man and most people will react positively to something his Foundation is doing. We especially need to educate the youth.
Obama (08 Aug 2009)
Obama missed the June 2008 vote on the Climate Security Act of 2008, but called the legislation "critical and long overdue .".Still, he said, the bill could be improved. Obama is far more dangerous than Bush because he can sell a line to those who are in the trance while Boy Bush could not do that on anything like the same scale. Bush was a transparent idiot with no communication skills who needed massive fraud at the polls to get him officially 'elected'. Obama is something new and fresh, a whole new type of candidate. Hillary is a partisan, same old crooked establishment.
Senator Edward Kennedy (26 Aug 2009)
Senator Kennedy is a complex, intelligent person who has stood up for himself, his family and his country. I admire him for those reasons. Senate was mishandled , one final ungraceful note is striking particularly close to home. Kennedy tell TIME that his circle is furious that his brain cancer has been cited by some in her camp as the reason for her decision to withdraw her name from consideration for the Senate seat being vacated by Hillary Clinton in New York. Senator Kennedy was my hero and an inspiration in every sense of the word. I was proud to call him my Senator, and I am as grief-stricken as I would be if I lost a member of my own family.
