Did US Intelligence have Prior Knowledge about Khashoggi’s Murder?

Who ordered the killing of Jamal Khashoggi? “The CIA and the White House are at odds over who’s responsible for what happened.” According to media reports, Langley is pointing its finger at Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman(MBS). Prior to the official release of the CIA report, the Washington Post (16 November) reported that “The CIA has concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in ...Read full article...

Secession from the European Union

The way in which Germany and France are refusing the right of the United Kingdom to leave the European Union demonstrates the fact that the EU is not simply a straight-jacket -. It also goes to show that the Europeans still care as little about their neighbours as they did during the two World Wars. Manifestly, they have forgotten that governing a country means more than simply defending its ...Read full article...

Pobreza atinge 50% nas áreas rurais da América Latina

A pobreza não entende de localização geográfica. As pessoas pobres vivem em países desenvolvidos, bem como em países subdesenvolvidos e em desenvolvimento. Há pessoas pobres em favelas, perto das cidades bem como em áreas rurais. Mas a pobreza parece mostrar uma tendência crescente nas zonas rurais da América Latina.

Data Management is a double-edged Sword

Data management has become a social debate; unnecessarily so. Data belongs to users and that should be obvious. Companies should get it, governments should get it. No one should be able to do anything with private data unless it was first informed to the user and data exchanges should only happen with expressed user approval. The Facebook scandal has uncovered errors and attitudes of dubious morality, such as gathering ...Read full article...

Poverty reaches 50% in rural areas of Latin America

Poverty does not care about geographical location. Poor people live in developed nations as well as in underdeveloped and developing countries. There are poor people in city squallers as there are in rural areas. But poverty seems to show a growing trend in rural Latin America. Almost half of the people living in the countryside in Latin America and the Caribbean are poor. There are 59 million people who ...Read full article...

Spain depleting African fishing reserves

Despite its overwhelming poverty, Africa possesses more resources than most people imagine. One of those resources is fish. Tens of ships sail from Europe to the African continent to extract tons of fresh fish every day. Most European nations including France and Spain join China and Japan in their search for fresh fish near African coastlines where they capture all kinds of sea life, including Bigeye Tuna, a species ...Read full article...

Secesión en la Unión Europea

La manera misma cómo Alemania y Francia niegan al ‎Reino Unido el derecho a salir de la Unión Europea demuestra que esa “unión” es algo ‎más que un yugo. Esa actitud también permite comprobar que los europeos de hoy ‎muestran por los intereses de sus vecinos el mismo desprecio que sentían en tiempos ‎de las dos guerras mundiales. Es evidente que los europeos han perdido la capacidad ‎de gobernar sus países, lo cual no es sólo defender los intereses nacionales a ...Read full article...

African status as the world’s technological dump threatens human health

One of the largest open-air dumps for technology products is located in Ghana, where people’s blood is contaminated with poisonous residues. There are people, including minors, who work there burning trash all the time to recover valuable materials or objects that could be reused. That high tech dump is not the only one that exists in developing countries, as reports and journalistic works claim. Most of the waste that ...Read full article...

Donald Trump quiets down Chris Wallace’s rumors and insinuations

In an exclusive interview for Fox News Sunday, US President, Donald Trump was patient enough to hear and answer Wallace’s mischaracterizations of the President, instead of using valuable time to ask real, in-depth questions about the state of the economy, immigration, the next two years in office, or any other relevant topic. Mr. Trump once again had to clarify, in multiple occassions, who the fake news media are and ...Read full article...

Corporate Media disinformation threatens Press Freedom

CNN notoriously is the most distrusted name in so-called television news. First Amendment “freedom of speech (and) the press” includes no major media rights to willfully report disinformation, Big Lies and fake news – suppressing what’s true and verifiable on issues mattering most. CNN notoriously is the most distrusted name in so-called television news. Along with other Western media, it’s a virtual mouthpiece for wealth, power and privileged interests. ...Read full article...

What do mid-term elections tell us about US interior conflict?

Donald Trump’s political realignment, just as that of Richard Nixon before him, is close to succeeding. The US mid-term elections have been interpreted by major media in terms of the partisan divide between Republicans and Democrats. However, continuing his in-depth analysis of the social fabric, there seems to be a clear retreat of the Puritans faced with the Lutherans and the Catholics. During the US mid-term elections, voters were ...Read full article...

Amazon’s corporate welfare privileges help enslave American Workers

New York City won bidding for one of two Amazon HQ2 locations by throwing $2.1 in tax incentives at the company. Seattle-based Amazon is like corporate predator Walmart, exploiting communities, along with harming local businesses and workers for maximum productivity and profits. The company’s $100 billion dollar CEO Jeff Bezos didn’t get super-rich by being worker and community friendly – just the opposite, the way all Western corporate giants ...Read full article...

Esta é a epidemia mais perigosa da América Latina

A realidade nos diz que quanto mais pobre você é, mais provável é que esteja desnutrido. As pessoas são mais propensas a comprar refrigerantes do que beber água. Eles gostam mais de comer produtos baratos com muito açúcar, sal e gordura do que consumir frutas e verduras. A razão por trás de tais escolhas é pobreza, embora ser pobre seja uma experiência diferente hoje do que há 30 anos. ...Read full article...

This is the most dangerous Epidemic in Latin America

Reality tells us that the poorer you are the more likely it is for people to be malnourished rather than hungry. People are more prone to buying soft drinks than drinking water. They are more fond of eating cheap products with too much sugar, salt and fat than consuming fruit and vegetables. The reason behind such choices is nothing else than poverty, although being poor result in different outcomes ...Read full article...

É a revolução digital positiva para todos?

A informação foi pulverizada e incontáveis ​​pequenos fragmentos formaram uma nuvem que envolve o planeta. “Nada pode impedir uma ideia cuja hora chegou”, ouvimos o tempo todo. No entanto, poucas pessoas param para perguntar se estamos prontos para aceitar essa ideia. Estamos prontos para dar o grande salto como indivíduos e como seres humanos para o mundo digital que paira no horizonte? Estamos devidamente ligados para absorver o que ...Read full article...
