Hey Hilary and Obama!

How about a little humanitarian bombing here?

Child slavery practiced by your close friends on the Arabian Peninsula

By Stephen Brown
frontpagemag.com

29 December 2011 — It is perhaps the most pernicious of evils. The words “child slavery” would cause most people nowadays to recoil in horror, but in the oil-rich countries of the Saudi Arabian Peninsula, it apparently still doesn’t.

The most recent and revolting incident shedding light on the continued existence of this murky and most heinous of crimes involves a thirty-five-year-old Pakistani mother who bravely refused to sell her two boys to a slaver in Dubai, one of the United Arab Emirates. But this heroine, whose name, Azim Mai, deserves to be mentioned, paid a high price for her courageous stand. Her husband, angry at her refusal to condemn her sons to such a cruel fate, threw acid in Mai’s face, seriously disfiguring her.

But there are still many other parents among Pakistan’s large, poverty-stricken population willing to sell their male offspring into the Persian Gulf. Boys as young as three are bought from poor parents, and sometimes simply kidnapped from the street, principally in Pakistan and Bangladesh, and sent as slaves to these oil-rich states for one purpose only: to win camel races for their new Arab masters. The boys are expected to do this after being trained as riders under very brutal conditions for what is a very popular sport in that region. (More)

Girl 14 posing with one and five dollar US bills

is used to give the finger to Venezuelan majority

By Rachael Boothroyd
venezuelanalysis.com

01 February CARACUS Venezuela — This week was the very first time that, in spite of myself, I really felt that I should commend the Guardian’s Latin America correspondent, Rory Carroll, on his investigative journalism skills. To his credit, Rory’s latest article addresses an issue that quite frankly had slipped right under my nose – “Chávez's daughter posts picture of herself posing with dollars”.

This week in Venezuela the government signed more bilateral agreements with Argentina, confirmed that participatory democracy would be central to government policy in coming years, continued with registration for its “Knowledge and Work” mission in a bid to further reduce unemployment, and withdrew from the World Bank’s arbitration body, the ICSID, on the grounds that its rulings were biased in favour of trans-national corporations.
 
So involved in all of this had I become that I barely even noticed that 14 year old Rosinés had changed her profile picture on the social networking site Instagram, that is of course until Rory came to the rescue. (More)

Sun Media sets up fake citizenship ceremony, Government takes civil servants away from their job to pose as new Canadians
 
The Canadian Press | CBC News
 
2 February 2012 — Six federal bureaucrats were drafted to pose as new Canadians for a citizenship reaffirmation ceremony broadcast on the Sun News network, an event requested by Immigration Minister Jason Kenney's office.
 
The bureaucrats smiled and held Canadian flags as the TV hosts referred to a group of 10 people as "new Canadians" that had "finally" received their citizenship.
 
Documents released under Access to Information legislation show that just a few weeks before Canada's Citizenship Week last October, Kenney's staff directed departmental officials to add a last-minute citizenship ceremony at the network to their list of scheduled events. (More.)

On pensioners: This is good strategy?

By Alex Binkley
True North Perspective

3 February 2012 — Back in his minority government days, Prime Minister Harper liked to brag about being a superb political strategist.

So who was the guy that used his moment in the spotlight as the leader of one of the world’s healthier economies at the World Economic Forum in Davos to fire up his critics back home with ill-chosen words about pension reform? Maybe he thought his speech would sound stirring in front of the other leaders.

All it did was energize his political opponents who could cite it as another example of the Conservatives' hidden agenda. It didn’t help that it took so long for his apologists to say he wasn’t targeting the Canada Pension Plan, but Ottawa’s two supplementary offerings — Old Age Security and Guaranteed Income Supplement.

Native groups to cite evidence
they weren't consulted as required by Supreme Court decisions
 
By Geoff Dembicki

30 January 2012 — On Sept. 28, 2011, Enbridge appears to have made an extraordinary offer of peace to several of its most dedicated opponents.
 
The scene was a Coastal First Nations board meeting on Granville Street in downtown Vancouver. That alliance of native communities nestled in coves and inlets along B.C.'s jagged north coast had agreed to host Enbridge CEO Pat Daniel and three other senior company officials. 
 
Relations between the Calgary-based pipeline giant and Coastal First Nations leaders were not exactly warm.
 
The specter of an oil spill by one of the hundreds of oil sands-laden supertankers Enbridge proposed sending past native villages each year posed a dangerous threat, in the view of the aboriginal leaders, to the natural landscape their peoples had called home for hundreds of years. (More.)

Anne Broadbent plays leading role in super-secret science

19 January 2012, WATERLOO, Canada — It sounds like something out of a spy novel — using the mysterious nature of quantum mechanics to create super-secret information that can’t be decoded by cloud computing systems.
 
But thanks to the work of a team of international scientists, including the Institute for Quantum Computing’s Anne Broadbent, it’s closer to reality than you think.
 
The breakthrough, published in the journal Science, is a crucial step toward perfectly secure cloud computing, a growing industry providing computer processing and data storage over the internet and other networks. (More.)

3 February 2012 — Guilty as charged! 
 
It didn’t take long for the jury to return  to the courtroom to announce their verdict that the Shafia trio were guilty of first degree murder. The judge thanked them and commended them. They had after all put their lives on hold for months to listen intently to the defence and the crown as they sought to make their case.
 
The response from the public was equally positive. “Justice has been served!” the press shouted from the front page of every paper. Those crowded into the court room, others standing outside in front of the historic Frontenac County Court House in the City of Kingston, as well as the Canadian public through the instantaneous media reportage, also agreed with the verdict. Those that sided with the defence counsel, if any, kept it to themselves.
 
I also agreed, for the issue was not just about the taking of human lives, those of their own family, but it was also an attack specifically on women. (More)

3 February 2012 — I’m sitting in the waiting room of the physiotherapy clinic enjoying the reprieve I’ve been granted by the announcement that the therapist is running a bit late.
I pull from my bag the latest TNP “Bits and Bites” article written by my friend Alberte, just back from a vacation in Barbados. I read about a tropical island with temperatures in the 30s, full sun, warm sand and a turquoise sea in which to cool off. In contrast, I am suffering from a frozen shoulder and all around me is gray: the walls, the chairs, the carpet, the skies, the snow on the ground, the cars covered with salt. My mood is being contaminated by the surrounding colour and with my gray hair, I am at risk of completely disappearing into the monochromatic decor. (More.)

3 January 2012 — Click. Click. Click. That is me with the remote control on any given night.  Seventy channels and there is nothing on. Click. Click. Click.  I am beginning to wonder why I have a subscription to cable television. Why am I paying seventy dollars a month? 

On any given night turn the television on and there it is – Reality TV. Yes, I can peer into the lives of other people. Don’t even have to leave my house. No just press that little button and I can be like a Peeping Tom.

I can watch shows about wealthy housewives. Listen to them gossip about each other while drinking a few martinis. I can find out the latest clothing trends and learn why I need Botox and implants. Now we are even going to have our own Canadian version. Housewives of Vancouver! (More)

In the shadow of totalitarianism 

Assange hearing means we are all suspects now

WikiLeaks founder says he will interview 'iconoclasts, visionaries and power insiders' and 'explore possibilities for our future'

By John Pilger
Truth-Out.org
 
2 February 2012 — This week's Supreme Court hearing in the Julian Assange case has profound meaning for the preservation of basic freedoms in Western democracies. This is Assange's final appeal against his extradition to Sweden to face allegations of sexual misconduct that were originally dismissed by the chief prosecutor in Stockholm and constitute no crime in Britain.
 
The consequences, if he loses, lie not in Sweden, but in the shadows cast by America's descent into totalitarianism. In Sweden, he is at risk of being "temporarily surrendered" to the US where his life has been threatened and where he is accused of "aiding the enemy" with Bradley Manning, the young soldier accused of leaking evidence of US war crimes to WikiLeaks. — (More.)

Can Ontario really deliver the continent's best in smart growth 

By Kaid Benfield

TheAtlanticCities.com

26 January 2012 — I’m fond of saying that the best-conceived plan for managing growth and development in North America is the Places to Grow framework adopted by the province of Ontario, Canada. Constructed pursuant to enabling legislation adopted by the province in 2005, Places to Grow addresses the future of a New Hampshire-sized region around and including Toronto, Canada’s largest city, and Hamilton, its 8th-largest. Called the "Greater Golden Horseshoe" for its bending shape around the western edge of Lake Ontario, the region also touches Lake Erie and the Georgian Bay that extends from Lake Huron.

The Horseshoe region is forecast to grow by 3.7 million people (a 47 percent population increase) and 1.8 million jobs by 2031. It is already home to a quarter of Canada’s population and will soon be the third-largest urban region in North America. Imagine the consequences if development is allowed to spread all over the land, without good planning. Imagine the lost landscape, the additional roads and traffic, the pollution, the lost habitat, the global warming emissions. (More.)

Ecuador: Could the one-time banana republic and economic

basket-case be the most radical and exciting place on Earth?

By Jayati Ghosh
AlterNet.org
 
30 January 2012 — Ecuador must be one of the most exciting places on Earth right now, in terms of working towards a new development paradigm. It shows how much can be achieved with political will, even in uncertain economic times.

Just 10 years ago, Ecuador was more or less a basket case, a quintessential "banana republic" (it happens to be the world's largest exporter of bananas), characterised by political instability, inequality, a poorly-performing economy, and the ever-looming impact of the US on its domestic politics.

In 2000, in response to hyperinflation and balance of payments problems, the government dollarised the economy, replacing the sucre with the US currency as legal tender. This subdued inflation, but it did nothing to address the core economic problems, and further constrained the domestic policy space. (More.)

How the Swedes and Norwegians

broke the power of the 'One Percent'

By George Lakey
WagingNonViolence.org

25 January 2012 — While many of us are working to ensure that the Occupy movement will have a lasting impact, it’s worthwhile to consider other countries where masses of people succeeded in nonviolently bringing about a high degree of democracy and economic justice. Sweden and Norway, for example, both experienced a major power shift in the 1930s after prolonged nonviolent struggle. They “fired” the top 1 percent of people who set the direction for society and created the basis for something different.

Both countries had a history of horrendous poverty. When the 1 percent was in charge, hundreds of thousands of people emigrated to avoid starvation. Under the leadership of the working class, however, both countries built robust and successful economies that nearly eliminated poverty, expanded free university education, abolished slums, provided excellent health care available to all as a matter of right and created a system of full employment. Unlike the Norwegians, the Swedes didn’t find oil, but that didn’t stop them from building what the latest CIA World Factbook calls “an enviable standard of living.”

Neither country is a utopia, as readers of the crime novels by Stieg Larsson, Henning Mankell and Jo Nesbø will know. Critical left-wing authors such as these try to push Sweden and Norway to continue on the path toward more fully just societies. However, as an American activist who first encountered Norway as a student in 1959 and learned some of its language and culture, the achievements I found amazed me. (More.)

The future of cancer surgery is ... crabs?

Researchs develop miniature robot to nip stomach tumours in the bud

By Tan Ee Lyn
IBTimes.com | Reuters

1 February 2012, SINGAPORE — Inspired by Singapore's famous chili crab dish, researchers have created a miniature robot with a pincer and a hook that can remove early-stage stomach cancers without leaving any scars.

Mounted on an endoscope, it enters the patient's gut through the mouth. It has a pincer to hold cancerous tissues, and a hook that slices them off and coagulates blood to stop bleeding.

With the help of a tiny camera attached to the endoscope, the surgeon sees what's inside the gut and controls the robotic arms remotely while sitting in front of a monitor screen. (More.)

Four paths to real estate profits with ETFs

Thursday 26 January 2012

By Ron Rowland
Money and Markets
 

I’ve spent my investment career following sector momentum, and it’s worked out pretty well. ETFs make it even better.

Right now my indicators show a lot of short-term strength in real estate. Personally, I find it hard to believe the housing market has truly bottomed. My colleague Mike Larson recently gave you some good reasons to doubt the housing rally.

In my experience, trends (either up or down) endure longer than most people think possible. So it makes sense to at least be aware of the alternatives on both sides.

Today I’ll tell you about four paths to the real estate sector with ETFs. I’ll also describe a couple of ways you can make a bearish bet on this group.

Builder, Owner, Lender, or More?

If you’ve ever bought or built a house, you know how much work happens before you even get the keys. The same is true for real estate investors. Through ETFs, you can …

  • Build homes
  • Own homes
  • Lend money for homes, or
  • Own a home lender.
Let’s look closer at each category and some example ETFs. (More)
